Parker weighs in 3 kilos lighter than Joshua

Two undefeated heavyweight titans will put their titles on the line when IBF, WBA champion Anthony Joshua takes on WBO champ Joseph Parker at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff live streamed online via Sky Sports. Joshua, meanwhile, seemed to settle in after a slow start once he committed to his jab, which he held a 93 to 49 advantage with throughout the fight.

“You have to remember that even though Im heavyweight champion of the world, theres another belt Im fighting for.

Joseph Parker has attracted plenty of interest today.

It wasn't without controversy.

After 12 rounds, Britain's Joshua triumphed 118-110, 118-110, 119-109 on the three judges' scorecards.

Wilder's comments come after 31-year-old British boxer Scott Westgarth died following his victory over Dec Spelman in February. I stuck to my word and I controlled it behind my jab and the counter punching.

"I think 2018 was always a time to capture all the belts", Joshua said.

For the 26-year-old to win this he had to have a lot of things go right. "It's not like we can rock up and do Wembley next week with another fighter: That's just with Anthony Joshua".

"When I watch boxing and I go back years ago and I see certain fighters win titles and they drop to their knees crying and all that stuff - I've never really done that but I think this will be a real emotional time because we're creating history".

Boxing fans want to see a new and established champion after a decade dominance of the Klitschko brothers, Vladimir and Vitali.

Boone experimented with it once in Spring Training but chose to stick with Gardner at the top of the lineup. The Yankees have the third shortest odds to win the World Series behind the Astros and the Dodgers.

Before the fight was made, Parker joined in with his promoter in baiting the WBA and IBF champion.

The first two rounds were close as both boxers were evenly matched and went about sizing up each other. "If it's down to me, I'm going to chase him".

Joseph Parker gets a big right through Anthony Joshua's defense midway through the fifth, sending the Briton reeling for the first time. The 26-year-old New Zealander is known for being aggressive, but will nearly certainly show more interest in defending himself than in previous fights, when he opened himself up to big hooks and uppercuts.

Joshua found his range in the third and both men were warned for leading with their heads.

The Englishman's power is undisputed - Parker's less so, particularly in light of his elbow issues - and Joshua is learning to control fights behind his jab and reach, which will be 4 inches longer than his opponent's. Joshua started to look a bit sloppy and was being screamed at to keep his shape. Asked what he saw when he looked into the eyes of his opponent Parker was obliging, generous and steadfast.

Joshua or Parker - who do you fancy?

Joshua appeared to hurt his younger foe at the beginning of the sixth, prompting the beginnings of a small brawl which the referee struggled to separate.

Taking those shots made Joshua go after Parker, but he couldn't land anything clean.

But the American's most brutal TKO came against Artur Szpilka at the Brooklyn Center in NY in January 2016. Strangely the referee didn't call a time out to fix it.
